The Saga of a Welsh Industrial Town
A Newtown Feature by R. Howell Evans
Produced by T. Rowland Hughes
For more than a hundred years Newtown in Montgomeryshire was pre-eminent in the manufacture of Welsh flannel. From the days of the handloom, when home and factory were one and the same building, to the years of the larger mills and power machinery, and on to the present day when only one mill remains, this programme tells the story in a series of dramatic sketches. The whole programme was recorded at Newtown by the BBC Mobile Recording Unit, the characters being played by members of the Newtown Amateur Dramatic Society and by old millhands who still remember 'the good ould days'.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
